Singles That Mingle

A massive dose of deadly singles from our resident expert, Captain Stavros 

False Heads

‘Mime the End’

Sick Moon - Out September 30 on Scruff of the Neck Records

A real nuts and bolts track, reminiscent of Blood Red Shoes hungrier days.

Bloomsday

‘Voicemail’

Place To Land out June 10 via Bayonet Records

A jam with a light touch.

Alice Low

‘Sodomizer’

A funkload of OG riffs on this absolute gem of a jam, it's got that big sword energy you never knew you needed.

Bonnie Trash

‘Teeth’

Single out now via Hand Drawn Dracula

Do, do, a double take on this ghostly identical duo as they cut their teeth on this haunting single.

Clamm

‘Monday’

Care out August 19 via Meat Machine Records

A tune spitting so much heat it'll take your head off and cauterize wound at the same time.

The Soft Moon

‘Him’

Exister out Sept 23 via Sacred Bones

Surf's up dudes! Dark wave surf. The long awaited follow up to 2018’s Criminal is almost here.

CANDY

‘World of Shit’

Out now via Relapse Records

Don't want to miss your stop on the tube? Fire this bad boy on and sleep will be the least of your concerns.

DEUX FURIEUSES

‘Resolute’

Bring Down the Government out now

I’d say it was a well-timed release, but they literally could have released it any time in the last 12 years and it would have been well timed

Ellie Bleach

‘Big Strong Man’

No Elegant Way To Sell Out, Out October 6 on Sad Club Records

Ellie’s new on the scene so you’ll likely not recognize the music when it pipes through your listening device. It’ll be the first time the tunes’ll make you take notice but not the last.

 

Muna Ileiwat

‘Pity Party’

Twenty-Seven out August 19 on FOMO Records

Great summer late nights playlist material.

Tan Cologne

Earth Visions of Water Spaces out September 9th on Labrador Records

If a Zephyr transmogrified itself into a song, this would be it.

October and The Eyes

‘Jack Black Must Die’

EP Who Upset You? Out Now on Kro Records

I think the YouTube description said it best, ‘Any comparison to real life people is defintely not coincidental’.

KEG

‘Elephant’

Gerders EP out September 2 Via ALCOPOP! Records

We’ll keep promoting KEG as long as they continue their strange trip down Absurdity Boulevard.

The Paranoyds

‘Lizzie’

TALK TALK TALK Out September 9 via Third Man Records

If America ever decides to dip their big toe into Eurovision, this should be their 2023 submission.

ALASKALASKA

‘Growing Up Pains’

A slow burner from the freshly re-surfaced, and blog favourites ALASKALASKA

Desire

‘Days & Nights’

Escape Out Now via Italians Do It Better

Skip to the 1 minute mark and prepare to appreciate Desire’s consistency.

The Paranoyds Visit The Pet Cemetery

  • Published in News

 

 

 

 

 

Not, as I suspected, a Ramones cover but surely inspired by the same Stephen King book, The Paranoyds return with a much-needed dose of musical levity. It’s been nearly a year since the Los Angeles-based outfit released Carnage Bargain, their debut full-length, and this new release, a two-song seven-inch, is a total embodiment of their every influence. New EP, Pet Cemetery, is set for release Nov 27 via Suicide Squeeze Records and the band are sharing the title track from the record online now.

 

Speaking about the new track, Staz Lindes of The Paranoyds said "When your honeymoon phase has the strength to extend to the underworld - 'Pet Cemetery' will be playing. If you are lucky enough to experience the type of love that feels deep enough to follow you underground with you and your lover- you know what ‘Pet Cemetery’ is saying. It is the ultimate love song with a message of passion strong enough for both life and afterlife.”

 

Despite the obvious heaviness that surrounds a track entirely centered on undead lovers partaking in PDA, there’s an undeniable undercurrent of fun. Previously recorded during sessions for the band’s full length-debut, this unofficial anthem for underworld romance was being saved for a special moment. On the record’s B-side, is ‘Hotel Celebrity’, a single that’s darkness isn’t quite so overt. An examination of aging, and the fruitless celebrity pursuit of superficial perfection, The Paranoyds share in a not so sincere toast to Hollywood.
